Fylde Council will consider plans to build 2,000 new homes a short distance from Blackpool, it has been revealed.
Planning agent CA Planning has submitted proposals on behalf of developer The Whyndyke Consortium, for the Whyndyke Farm development.
This will include 2,000 new homes, various shops, new community centres, a primary school, new accessible roads and office space.
It is expected to take around three months for a final decision to be reached for the site just off Preston New Road.
A planning statement issued by CA Planning said: “The proposed scheme will provide much needed larger family-sized dwellings as sought by the council.”
The project will also include a number of environmentally friendly features, such as a low carbon sustainable energy centre to provide new homes with heat and power.
If they are approved the new homes would provide “considerable merits” for both Blackpool and Fylde, according to the planning statement.
The CA Planning statement said: “[The Whyndyke Farm development] will result in significant benefits to both the immediate area and wider context including the provision of a wide choice of housing and promoting regeneration of currently under-utilised land to serve both Blackpool and Fylde.”
